Vegan-iversay

On January 30th I celebrated one full year of eating a plant-based diet and about six months of being vegan. I say that because in the beginning it was just about weight loss and health for me, I hadn’t made the connection to the animals. I wasn’t consciously […]

New on Netflix: Rotten

There’s a new documentary series on Netflix called “Rotten” that I started watching this week. I have only watched the first episode so far, but it was very interesting and I will definitely continue to watch more. The series is dedicated to investigating corporate corruption in the food […]

My Weekday Morning Routine

One thing I have learned about myself is that I am happier, more productive and efficient, and just function better in general when I have a routine that I follow. I think I spent about half of my adult life coming to this realisation, that I not only […]

Back in Elementary School

Yesterday I had my required appointment with the Dietitian. Let me tell you, in the hospital when the doctor told me I needed to see a dietitian because eating at McDonald’s is not healthy and eating ham or bacon is not low-fat, my head nearly exploded. And when […]

Reboot Day Two

I am not going to lie, yesterday was very hard. I drank three glasses of juice, which was one more than the day before, still not the four that were in the plan from the book. I didn’t make any fresh juice at all, I had three glasses […]

Reboot Day One

Yesterday I started my juicing reboot. It was a lot harder than I imagined. Not eating solid food wasn’t hard at all for me. I can easily fast for a day or two. And the truth is I really don’t eat all that much. Left to my natural […]

Countdown to Plant Strong

My boyfriend bought me the juicer I wanted for my birthday and yesterday it shipped from Amazon! The more I read (and since getting a Kindle, I am reading A LOT!) the more I think a juicer will be very helpful for┬ámy Plant Strong lifestyle. I have detoxed […]

Is Juicing the Answer?

Over the weekend I watched some more documentaries on Netflix including Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. I had heard of it and added it to my Netflix list quite awhile ago, but I didn’t really know what it was all about. I assumed some sort of plant based […]
